Did you know that both women and men can experience perinatal mental health issues?
Having a baby is both an exciting and challenging time.
Adding anxiety or depression can make it difficult to
function and feel like you are a good enough parent.
As a mum or dad it is easy to feel guilt and shame that can get in the way of seeking the help you need. If this is how you
feel, know that you are not alone.
Having perinatal anxiety or depression does not make you a ‘bad parent’. In fact, seeking help early leads to a faster recovery with less impact on you, your relationship with your baby, partner and family.
If you, or someone you know, may be experiencing perinatal mental health issues, head to panda.com.au or call 1300 726 306
